I believe this frame is early Dodge Bros. (1926 or '27). I have the same frame on my '26 roadster as a temp frame until I get my real '26-'27 installed...

Re: Oil,,,???

Well said Jack.

I plan to run 30W non-detergent oil in my new T motor for the first 500 miles (break-in) then switch over to full synthetic (Amsoil) as recommend by those who built my engine.

Re: Oil,,,???

...But for a original splash oiling system in a T, you can go any heavier then 30w oil. Thicker oils can't get into the bearings and can cause damage to the Babbitts...and in a real hurry too!

I had no intention of using the Ford mag coil...just the magnets for weight and oiling purposes. My ignition system is a properly designed auto-advance Mallory unit and a good, hot...

Re: '21-'22 Coupe Broken Tranny, and a couple Pics just to please you!

A very good friend has a 1909 Brush Runabout.... Its titled as an '09, but I think it is actually a 1911 or '12.

The little Brush motor is the wildest thing. It lost a rod bearing last summer and...

Either way, The motor has to come out....and if it does go through it all and thoroughly!

Re: '21 - '22 Coupe is home safe. Tire questions.

Oh, and Tires are easy. Riversides are good (popular with the T guys), but both Coker and Universal tires have wide ranges of 30 x 3 1/2" tires for those.

All T's ran 30 x 3 1/2" tires until 1925...
